This book pioneers the synergy between state-of-the-art edge computing technologies and the power of operations research. It comprehensively explores real-world applications, demonstrating how various operations’ research techniques enhance edge computing’s efficiency, reliability and resource allocation. Innovative solutions for dynamic task scheduling, load balancing and data management, all tailored to the unique challenges of edge environments, are displayed.

Starting with operation research methodologies with foundations, applications and research challenges in edge computing and an overview of digital education, this book continues with an exploration of applications in the health sector using IoT, intelligent payment procedures and performance measurement of edge computing, using edge computing and operation research. Smart or AI-based applications are also explored further on and the book ends with insight into ultra-lightweight and security protocols with solutions for IoT using blockchain.
